Started a 21-day challenge in which I aimed to learn something new about Bitcoin or interact with its ecosystem every day. I would also record my progress on Stacker News.
Day 11 - Asked Bitcoiners how they feel about paying children sats to do household chores. Some shared that they distinguish essential chores from others that they would pay someone else to get done. Hence, while essential chores should be done by them to fulfill their obligations as members of one family, children can get sats if they help parents do their work. Getting sats will then be a great way for them to learn about the value of work exchanged for money. I really feel that the discussions with Stackers sharpened my thinking and defined my parenting philosophy more clearly.

Day 5 - Created a discussion post on Stacker News and was surprised to receive 1800+ sats. Never expected for it to garner so much attention. Decided to withdraw 1000 sats to my wallet and spend the rest on zapping others, since I kinda feel rich!

Remember to dump some sats in https://stacker.news/rewards

Festival with my boys! Maybe some vendors will take sats?

Lol I wish. I was on a nice roll then I spent an hour trying to get an svg progress meter for character counts into inputs without messing up the dom flow and gave up. You made the right call on that one.

Can you share a screenshot of it from the Twitter UI?
reply
Like this. But for text inputs (not textareas) to be space efficient vertically we'd want them to be positioned in-line with the input (a hack). When I attempted relatively positioning it (avoiding the hack of absolutely positioning it), it was more work than I wanted. Basically, it's an afternoon of work to get it like I want it.

Watching the 9/11 ceremony. It still gets to me.
reply
Have you visited the memorial in nyc? highly recommend
reply
Oh yeah. I've been many times. I spent a lot of time near ground zero after the event. My cousin worked there for a construction company doing cleanup. Brother in law NYPD was off that day. One of his sons is now FDNY. The other NYPD.
reply
Is not a ceremony. Is a devils birthday. 9/11 was an inside job
reply
I've read all about it and I have my questions. I don't think about that stuff today. A lot of people from my home town died in those towers. One person who was at a party with me a week earlier died. That's why I watch.
reply
fair enough. I don't want and don't need to convince anybody about what really happened.
reply
We probably agree. I pay respects to the dead.

I am writing a series of articles about healthcare, pharmaceuticals and scientific history based on the research that I have done for my own personal life and family's health. These will be long, with citations aplenty. Is there any interest in that type of content here? The devolution of r/science and other subreddits into echo-chamber hellholes is partially motivating this. I'm hoping to have a place to go on SN where these important discussions and disagreements can take place without moderator bans or overt partisanship.
reply
Looking forward to reading it! I also dug quite some books about health last year, and happy to input some of my findings:
  • Sickness actually comes from the mind, and some important influencing factors are air, food, and liquids.
  • All bacteria are already within ourselves; the art of remaining healthy is to avoid creating a suitable environment for the bad bacteria to grow.
  • Learn how to listen to our body instead of listening to others: when we are sick, it means our body is trying to tell us something; the so-called symptoms actually mean the body is doing its work.
  • Our body is a perfect machine - it can heal itself, and all we need to do is do less harm! For example, when sick, fasting and sleep.
  • Modern medicine only masks the systems, not curing the root cause.

There is still so much to learn, I would love to have a dedicated sub to discuss the most important topic: health @hq @sn
reply
Thanks for the positive response! You make some excellent points. Simple things like changes to diet can cause significant improvements in healthspan.
The responses on SN have been encouraging and I look forward to sharing my work with you all :)
reply
Another interesting idea I have been exposed to lately is that we are actually not eating the food but "eating" the living gas inside ( our cell does not need any food ).
How fascinating 🀯
reply
Yes, diet is really important, definitily not eating any fiat food.
Also do more what brings joy and being surrounded by positive and loving people helps a lot, and waiting for your articles!:)
reply
I like the idea, as long as there ends up being a healthy discussion of it which I suspect there probably will
reply
Thanks! I have faith in the SN community to have an open mind, despite our many differences

Hah yes, I'm not so much looking for "safety". I'd rather have people dig deep into my citations and poke holes in my findings (because some things are quite ugly as you can probably imagine). I WANT TO be proven wrong, if that makes sense. I don't like the things I've found, they make me uncomfortable and sad.
The biggest issue I have with Reddit at the moment, as a scientist myself, is the unwillingness to engage with uncomfortable truths described in peer-reviewed publications (hardly conspiracy theories)

Started a 21-day challenge in which I aimed to learn something new about Bitcoin or interact with its ecosystem every day. I would also record my progress on Stacker News.
Day 3 - Followed up on a Bitcoiner’s recommendation - btcmap.org - and was stunned to realise that some merchants in my country accepted Bitcoin as payment. Goggled subsequently and learnt the existence of at least 5 restaurants that accept Bitcoin payments. Publicised one of them on a forum that I patronised: TIL that a Japanese restaurant, Maison Ikkoku, accepts payments in BTC!

I’m feeling a bit hurt as I went to the shops yesterday and even without logging in to SN I can hear people calling me a statist f**ktard for using a traffic crossing, media sheeple for buying a newspaper and a certain maxi on here saying I am a 5hitcoiner for using the local currency! SN gets in you head I guess

Monday fun: sharing my first piece of calligraphy
I remember I wanted something unique to hang on the wall, but I couldn't find anything meaningful. And after moved to a smaller town, now I got more time to learn and figure out things I am interested in; it actually feels great to self-produce art or generally make anything with your own bare hand.!
reply
This is cool
reply
thanks! I don't remember how many hours it took me to finish it, but I enjoy making beautiful things:)

I used to get into calligraphy. This kind of reminds me of that.

Pain, suffering, death I feel. Something terrible has happened. Young Skywalker is in pain. Terrible pain...
Patience you must have my young padawan...

best comment of today!
patience - willing to try, make mistakes and do not stop learning.

You triggered me with that "patience" calligraphy. Calligraphy as Bitcoin, means a lot of patience and training. You prove it!

and "suffering", haha, off I go to learn new tools!
